Say Yes to Health

Say Yes to Health

It’s almost fall so you know what that means. Time for sweaters, pumpkin lattes, and back to school. The lazy pace of summer is lingering in the air as we all start to prepare for the hustle and bustle of autumn. We can all relate to getting back into the groove of things, but what about our health? This too needs attention and the time is now. For me there is no beauty conversation without the baseline of health. Makeup looks better on healthy skin and healthy skin only comes from true wellness.

I’m not talking about going to the spa or buying expensive skin care products, even though I have plenty of suggestions. I’m talking about getting to the root of wellness which is quality affordable healthcare. Healthcare is about preventative medicine that allows us to have a more productive day and a longer life. It’s about being there for your family and being good to yourself. So selfishly and candidly we have to get real about our rights. It’s midterm election season and I am nervous. No matter where you fall on the party lines, we all want to protect ourselves and our families. A cornerstone of that philosophy should be health.

I’m thankful everyday for the historic passing of the Affordable Care Act. As a small business owner, Obamacare has been here for me when I made no money and needed insurance. Without it I would be vulnerable. For families with working parents who still don’t have employer covered health care, I know Obamacare has brought some light to bleak outlooks. Now obviously it’s not without its faults, but we had to start somewhere. No first draft is brilliant, but at least we started the work. Now it’s time to plan our future. Have you registered to vote? Check your state because it’s a fall deadline that many miss because they don’t plan. This midterm election season will absolutely shape our future and I am not going to stand idly by.

Nearly 20 million people have gained healthcare coverage since 2010, thanks President Obama. Planned Parenthood has over 700 health centers primarily in our neighborhoods, servicing over 2.8 million people per year. Now those are the facts and a reason to go to the polls. There should be no shame in getting the healthcare you need, no matter your needs. The shame is that we have to fight for that to be true.

So say yes to your beauty by saying yes to your health. Now is the time. Register to vote and tell a friend.

Nude Lip Colors for WOC? Try Mented Cosmetics

Nude Lip Colors for WOC? Try Mented Cosmetics

By Cici @cici_heranpark

There is a hole in the Beauty Industry for Brown and Deeper toned skin that is slowly but surely being filled.  I remember talking about this with an Aunt.  We talked about how the current standard “Nude” lipsticks cater to people with lighter complexions.  The baby pinks and light brownish beige colors are not as nude as they should appear when worn by women with darker skin tones.

I teamed up with Mented Cosmetics to bring you a “Nude Series!” I created six looks to go with all six nude lipsticks in the Capsule Collection.  Now usually, I do not reach for creamy matte shade lipsticks but these definitely changed how I felt about creamier formulas in a lipstick.  I prefer a more matte formula when wanting to wear a solid color but these are moisturizing and pigmented enough for me to make them my Go-To nudes. They look very natural and compliment me very well.

These lipsticks look great with every look I did.  Of course the darker shades stand out against my skin tone because I am a medium tan complexion. The lighter shades are very nude and are all I need on natural/neutral days.  What I love the most about the Capsule Collection is that it comes with a mixture of medium and dark browns with both cool and warm shades.

Each look below showcases each shade on my complexion.

From left top to bottom right. Dope Taupe, Foxy Brown, Nude Lala, Dark Night, Mented #5 and Pretty in Pink.
